Jiri KARLIK, Havlickuv Brod Member Since March 2011 Artist Statement I was born in 1952 in Havlickuv Brod in the Czech Republic. I graduated from technical college in Jihlava.
Since I was little I was interested in art and therefore I started to go to the art school. My first teacher who taught me how to paint was the academic painter Jan Juzl who was a student of famous academic painter Max Svabinsky. Also after these early teachings of the painting I become more like self-taught artist.
I painted a variety of art techniques such as tempera painting, oil painting, encaustic painting and action painting. Currently I am painting by chalk/oil. In previous years I was also involved in wood carving from basswood.
Regarding to my creation of paintings there are predominantly scenery which incurred intuitively.
Thank you for that you are faithful to the creative art.
